A yearbook is but 

a reflection of one moment 

in a persons life 

that is subject to change. 

The important thing for us 

at any one moment is to 

enjoy, experience and learn 

everything that life holds for us. 




''Someday when 

we both reminisce, 

we'll both say 

there wasn't too much 

we missed. 
And through the tears, 

we'll smile 

when we recall 

we had it all . . .

"I believe in myself, and I am confident that I can 
make it in this world." 

Fern Koenig has been a resident student for four years. 
While many students tend to move off-campus in their 
senior year. Fern says she enjoys the dorm life. "I like 
the idea of being with my friends. My closest friends are 
from my dorm." 

Fern is majoring in elementary education. When asked 
why she decided to attend a school where so much em- 
phasis is put on careers and obtaining high-paying jobs, 
she replied, "I've always wanted to be a teacher and 
Simmons has a good program. The more people that tell 

me that teaching doesn't pay well and that I'll never find 
a job, the more determined I am to become a teacher. I'll 
find a job no matter what anyone else says." 

Fern's comments that her Simmons experiences are 

"I always liked Simmons from the beginning. The peo- 
ple were trustworthy and friendly and I felt comfortable 
here right away. Simmons is a well-respected school 
with much to offer students. I have faith in the school 
and am proud to be a part of the student body."

"My friends always tell me 'Jeanne Marie, you always 
have a smile on your face, don't you ever get sick of it?" 

Jeanne Marie Franze has double majored in economics 
and communications, is president of the economics 
liaison, is a member of Academy, and did a challenging 
internship in the Office of Public Affairs at Children's 
Hospital. She also played fall and spring season tennis 
her freshman, sophomore, and junior years and was cap- 
tain of the team for her last two years. 

How does Jeanne Marie do all of this and still main- 
tain excellent grades? She says that it is partly due to her 
being organized and managing a busy schedule. "When 
I'm busy, I seem to do better. When I have a lot of free 
time, I tend to waste it." 

When asked how she chose Simmons for her educa- 

tion, she said that the last place she wanted to be was at 
a women's college in the city, but she was attracted to 
the communications and internship programs here. Her 
first two years were shaky ones here, as she wasn't sure 
if this was the place for her. As the years have gone by, 
however, she realized that Simmons has been an 
"invaluable experience." 

One of the traits that makes Jeanne Marie unique is 
her interest in people. 

"I enjoy meeting new people and helping people. I'm 
fascinated hearing where other students are from and 
what their lives are like. There are so many good people 
here and I enjoy being with them."

"I guess what makes me unique is the fact that I don't 
give up. I like challenges, I love life, and I love the 
challenges of growing ..." 

Michele Zuccarello is a 34 year old, full-time 
Continuing Education student, management major. She 
is also a wife, a mother, and a business woman. She will 
graduate in May and plans to attend law school, 
eventually hoping to practice law on Cape Cod where 
she lives now. 

Michele started school 15 years ago at Boston College, 
but only attended there for one year before leaving to 
get married. 

"I went to school during the Vietnam Era. I was more 

interested in protesting than anything else." 

When asked what made her return to school after such 
a long absence, she replied. 

"I've worked for 15 years and have been very 
successful. I decided that I would try school again, this 
time at Cape Cod University College, and if it worked, I 
would continue. Everyone has been so supportive. 
Continuing Ed goes out of their way to help students, 
and the quality of the teaching is excellent here. I've 
never had a teacher that hasn't offered to talk to me or 
help me out during office hours or after class."

Profile: Dr. Judith Bryant Wittenberg 

Judith Bryant Wittenberg came to 
Simmons to teach in 1978, one year after re- 
ceiving her Ph.D. in English and American 
Literature from Brown University. The 
courses she offers here include Modern 
American Drama, Studies in Film, Victorian 
Fiction and Poetry, Women in Literature, 
and Freshman Writing. 

Her own research has been primarily in 
the field of fiction; she has published arti- 
cles on Thomas Hardy, William Faulkner, 
and the lesser-known Southern writers El- 
len Glasgow and Joan Williams, and is the 
author of a book, Faulkner: The Transfigura- 
tion of Biography. Her most recent work com- 
bines her interest in the novel with current 
scholarship in the field of feminist literary 
theory, which she hopes will culminate in 
another book. 

Wittenberg says she has enjoyed 
enormously her years at Simmons, finding 
the combination of a small college, a 
commitment to women's education in 
liberal arts and the professions, lively stu- 
dents, and friendly colleagues an excellent 
one. She wishes the class of '86 well and 
looks forward to hearing from and about 
them in the years ahead.

PROFILE: Alden W. Poole, B.S., Professor of Journalism 

To the Class of 1986: 

We're leaving Simmons this spring, you to graduate, I 
to retire after teaching journalism here for 31 years. I 
have enjoyed bringing my 26 years of experience as writ- 
er and editor on newspapers to the classroom. It has been 
fun trying to help young women develop their writing 
skills, publish their work, win awards, get rewarding in- 
ternships and find jobs after graduation. But I will trea- 
sure most the true friendships with students, hundreds 
of them. We've kept in touch. Their growth in life and 
work has been most rewarding. 

I nagged them while they were here about getting so 
caught up in the career frenzy that they overindulged in 
"professional" courses at the expense of their intellectu- 
al, moral and spiritual development. Some wisely chose 
to do a second major in a humanities or social science 
area. I wish more had. We are all tired of hearing young 
people stereotyped as selfish, materialistic aspirants for 
Yuppiehood, lacking in social conscience. But there is 
some truth in it — and not just for young people. 

You, we, in our middle class comfort and complacency, 
are beneficiaries of our social /economic /political systems. 
But those same systems we support also have their 
victims. We'll find them in prisons, military cemeteries, 
ghettoes, shelters, soup kitchens, food stamp lines, VA 
hospitals etc. Perhaps if we had all read more of 
Tolstoy's non-fiction, of E.F. Schumacher (Small is 
Beautiful — Economics as if People Mattered), or Gandhi, 
or Dorothy Day, or Martin Luther King, or Thomas 
Merton, or Jonathan Schell or Rabbi Heschel, we would 
have a more sane perspective. I fear too many career- 
bound Simmons women have never read — or even heard 
of — some of the above. Pursuing the great god Profit, 
getting that $1200-a-month Harbor Towers apartment, 
the expensive toys, the good life — is that all there is to 
the American dream? 

Simmons does its job well, but the pendulum swings. 
Right now, student priorities and "market forces" have 
thrown the balance too far to the career side. It will 
swing back in time. Meanwhile you who are graduating 
still have a lifetime to fill in the gaps in your knowledge 
of the literature, the history, the philosophy, the ideas 
and forces that have shaped your world. 

As for me, I am belatedly trying to do that too, I've 
been lucky and I've been blessed: with a cherished life 
partner, nine children I'm proud of, seven delightful 
grandchildren. I've had the vacation home, the boats, the 
skiing, the expensive toys, the good life. And it's not 
good enough — or perhaps it's too good. What's next? I 
now have the freedom to attempt to practice full-time 
what I have been preaching but only sketchily tried to 
practice all my life. I'm going to try to get along on less, 
materially, and try to put my body and energy more 
fully into causes I care about: non-violence, the nuclear 

weapons race, hunger, poverty, racism, and the preserva- 
tion of this beautiful world.

Profile: Dr. Lynda Moore 

Dr. Moore teaches courses in Dynamics of 
Management, Organizational Behavior, Behavioral Impli- 
cations of Women in Management, and Personnel. 

Her research and consulting have focused on human 
resources management issues, particularly the develop- 
ment and utilization of women in management. She has 
led seminars and published articles in this area. Her most 
recent work has resulted in a book Not As Far As You 
Think: The Realities of Working Women (Lexington Books) 
which was published in March, 1986. She is very active 
in many professional organizations and holds several na- 
tional offices, including Executive Director of the Insti- 
tute for Women and Organizations and Program Chair 
for The Women in Management Division of the 
Academy of Management. 

Dr. Moore commented, "I'm especially committed to 
women's education and so I really enjoy teaching at 
Simmons. Given my interest in management education 
and development of women, I attempt to bring into my 
courses the latest research and practice on educating 
women for successful and satisfied careers and lives. 
Simmons provides a unique environment and curriculum 
which I believe gives our students a head start to over- 
come obstacles and realize their ambitions."

resumes and interviewing techniques. 

When asked what she has enjoyed most at Simmons 
over the years, she commented that it would be the in- 
teraction and relationships she's been able to have with

Mother /Daughter Weekend is a fairly new tradition that 
is held first semester for seniors and their mothers or 
guardians. Mothers are given the opportunity to meet 
faculty members and spend time with their daughters at 
special activities. 

This year Mother /Daughter Weekend was held Novem- 
ber 22-24. The festivities began Friday evening with a 
champagne reception in the Trustman Art Gallery from 4-6 
p.m. The remainder of that night was left open to allow 
mothers and their daughters private time to do with as they 

The traditional Saturday afternoon luncheon was held at 
the Westin Hotel, Copley Place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. 
Mothers and daughters dined on Chicken Chausser or 
Baked Filet of Sole followed by a heavenly chocolate 
mousse cake. The guest speaker was Dr. Judith Wittenberg 
of the English department. Her topic was the changing 
relationships of mothers and daughters in the 1980s. Fol- 
lowing the luncheon, the women were free to tour the 
town, shop, or rest before their evening plans. 

The weekend's committee offered tickets for Saturday 
night's performance of "A Chorus Line" at the Wang Cen- 
ter. For those who did not attend the theatre presentation, 
Boston's fine dining and night life was at their disposal. 
Many mothers and daughters took advantage at that time to 
see the only showing of the Renoir exhibit in the country, 
which was at the Museum of Fine Arts. 

The weekend was concluded with a brunch at President 
and Mrs. Holmes' home in Brookline on Sunday morning.

The Accounting Association provides a chance for 
interested students to meet and discuss current 
events in the accounting world. The Association 
also attempts to keep students aware of opportuni- 
ties within the accounting field and of the growing 
number of women who are obtaining jobs there. 
This year, like many of the other liaisons, the Asso- 
ciation participated in a career night, which gave 
students a chance to talk with alumnae about their 
accounting experiences. The Accounting Associa- 
tion also put together an Alumnae Accounting Di- 
rectory to form a network between alumnae and 
students of Simmons.

The Activities Programming board, APB, is a vital or- 
ganization to the Simmons community. It developed 
three years ago through SGA, as an organization that 
would provide more programming for the students. To- 
day APB provides students with educational, cultural 
and social programs. The organization has grown from 
an original 11 members to presently 31 board members 
who work in seven areas of programming: Annual 
Events (such as Fall Fest, Spring Spree, and Winter 
Weekend), Lectures, Travel, Concerts /Coffee houses. 
Community and Educational Programs, Performing Arts, 
and Film Series. This growth has enabled more students 
to become involved. 

Highlights of this year's events included: The Tour de 
Force Cabaret Dinner, The Valentine's Ball, Fred Villar's 
School of Self-Defense Workshop, Dith Pran lecture fol- 
lowing the screening of "The Killing Fields" . . .

The Black-Hispanic Organization 
has been active at Simmons since 
the early 1970s. The organization 
strives to promote interest, unity 
and self-pride within ght Black and 
Hispanic communities, and func- 
tions as an influencing campus 
group on pertinent policies and atti- 
tudes of administration, faculty and 
students. The organization has 
many bake sales and vendors 
throughout the year to help fund 
such activities as their annual Sadie 
Hawkins Dance, Kwanza, and Black 
History Month Activities Cabaret. A 
special highlight planned for this 
year was to contribute aid for the

campus for many years. The group provides students and 
others within the Simmons community with an opportu- 
nity to be enriched culturally. Chorale is open to all stu- 
dents with an interest in music with no necessary prior 
experience. This year the group has between 40 and 50

changes with other schools such as Brandeis University, 
Wheaton College, Columbia University, Worcester 

Polytechnic Institute, Villanova University and the Uni-

The Simmons Christian Fellow- 
ship is an organization that unifies 
students who share in the Christian 
faith. SCF holds weekly meetings at 
which the members pray, sing, 
discuss issues, and have dinners to- 
gether. They have civil retreats 
throughout the year, attend church, 
and have Bible study twice a week. 
SCF also sponsors lectures on 
current issues and events that 
concern the Simmons community. 
The organization contributes to the 
Boston community by having a 
Walk for Warmth, a five mile walk 
sponsored by Christians for Urban 
Justice. The money they raise goes 
to the local underpriviledged. They 
also sponsor a clothing drive, which

Hillel is an old and established 
organization on campus that unites 
the Simmons Jewish community 
through religious, cultural and so- 
cial programming. Some major pro- 
grams included the annual comedy 
night held at Quadside Cafe. Joint 
activities held with other college 
Hillels in the area were also 
popular. These events featured 
dances, Israeli dancing at MIT, 
smaller parties, and lectures or live 

This year Hillel focused on the 
problems of the modern Jewish stu- 
dent. They invited speakers to the 
Kosher Kitchen to address the stu- 
dents on problems such as women 
in Israel, education, and the Arab/ 
Israeli conflict.

President Renee Lussier described the organization as having 40 percent of the student population as members, 
and is not just another organization on campus. To bridge the gap between residence students and commuters, she, 
along with her fellow officers, tries to provide speakers, teas, parties and the comforts of a lounge to help commuters 
feel more a part of the Simmons community. 

The organization is beneficial to those who have moved off-campus, but especially to those who have been com- 
muters since Day One. Those who decide to move off-campus already have some friendships established, compared 
with those who never lived in dorms. Both types of commuters are encouraged to feel as though they have a social, 
as well as academic life, here at Simmons. The commuter lounge offers a place to get together and compare notes on 
public transportation, social activities, and the next up-coming exam. 

For the fall of 1985, the lounge underwent major renovations; nothing had been done to it for over ten years. The 
students put up new prints and acquired a couch for added comfort. Some of their spring goals were to offer more 
dances and get-togethers. 

Another important aspect of the organization is their role as liaison to the administration. Commuter students has 
a commuter advisor and are not only warmly welcomed into the Simmons community by them, but are encouraged 
to communicate any grievances or suggestions through them to the administration.

The FBI Society's membership consists primarily of 
those women majoring in the fields of finance and busi- 
ness. Maria Fernandez, the group's president, stated that 
the organization is special because of "its determination 
to give its members a window to the real world of 
finance and to create a broad range of knowledge of the 
fields available." The group was active this year with ac- 
tivities such as a career night. Accounting Administra- 
tion and Management socials, bake sales, vendor sales, 
and functions with guest speakers from places like the 
Federal Reserve.

The Korean Student Association's main goal 
for this year was to get in contact with Korean 
societies on other local college campuses, and 
to hold a variety of activities for students at 

First semester was an active one for this 
group. They held a blind-date Teahouse and 
Korean movie night in October, a Thanksgiv- 
ing dinner to bring members closer together 
to celebrate the holiday, and held a Christmas 
card fundraising sale. 

Second semester also had many exciting 
events planned. A bake sale and party were 
planned to raise money for their April Korean 
Day which exposes the Simmons community 
to what Korean cultures are about, usually 
through the food they eat. 


President Tatiana Gorayeb said there are 
about 50 international students in the 
Simmons community. The association runs 
cultural events and brings speakers to campus, 
not just for the international students, but for 
other Simmons students as well. 

Tatiana felt that it is important to give peo- 
ple the awareness that other countries do exist 
and some are in desperate need. 

The association also helps those who are far 
away from home to meet each other and share 
those feelings, since these women can not sim- 
ply go home for a weekend visit.

After a semester of reorganization, the old 
newspaper. The Janus, reappeared better than be- 
fore in the Fall in the form of the new Simmons 

The staff was restructured, with incentives of 
stipends offered to the top editorial positions. An 
increased emphasis was placed on covering a 
wide range of issues of interest to the entire col- 
lege community, often creating a platform for 
campus debate on issues through editorials. 

The stories were indeed thought-provoking. A 
fall semester article describing one reporter's ex- 
periences dining in Bartol Hall, resulted in 
unexpected visits by Dean Morocco and Presi- 
dent Holmes. Shortly thereafter, major changes 
were made in the food service management, and 
the atmosphere and quality of meals also im- 

The weekly newspaper continued to be the 
primary source of information for the college 
throughout the second semester, and the Simmons 
News tradition lived on for yet another year.

The Student Alumnae Association was established five years ago due to a 
need for an organization that would provide interaction between the students 
and alumnae. Some of the major SAA programs are the Head of the Charles 
Regatta Tailgate Party, Alumnae Reunion Weekend and the Mentor Dinner. 
The mentor program allows students to make alumnae contacts who are 
working the students' major fields of study. 

SAA is open to all Simmons students.

SGA — Just another student organization? Not true! The 
Student Government Association has many administra- 
tive responsibilities that function to serve the student 
body. Other organizations represent particular groups of 
students, but SGA represents everyone on campus. Every 
Simmons student is a member of SGA. Student council is 
the liaison between faculty and students. 

SGA started the year concentrating on two issues: the 
state of student evaluations and the college's involve- 
ment in South Africa. November 4-8 was declared Stu- 
dent Evaluation Week, and on Saturday, November 16 a 
group of students summarized all evaluations and passed 
them on to department chairpersons. SGA also declared 
October 31 South African Awareness day. Along with 
the help of the Afro-American Studies and Sociology de- 
partments, SGA organized an informational booth in the 
Fens, a film on South Africa, and a guest speaker.

In the past, the Freshman class has not 
been able to "get their act together/' but the 
class of 1989 set out to change this tradition, 
and that they did! With 87 people at their 
first class meeting, the freshmen planned a 
busy and exciting year for themselves. It 
started with a successful dance called 
"Freshman Fireworks", and went uphill 
from there. Under the direction of Presi- 
dent Betsy Quint, Vice President Tracy 
Shaffer, Treasurer Lena Rozman and Secre- 
tary Janice Pressman, the freshmen had a 
very successful first year at Simmons.

The Chemistry Liaison is comprised of a group of stu- 
dents who are either Chemistry majors or who have an 
interest in the sciences. The liaison tries to make stu- 
dents aware that chemistry can be applied to many 
things and that there are many different fields it in- 
volves. One highlighted event for the liaison was a ca- 
reer day where people from different chemistry and 
science related fields came to speak on their experiences 
in their particular field. The liaison also planned an ac- 

tivity called Chem-Magic, where faculty will perform 
magic tricks by using chemistry.

The Math Liaison attempted to educate students be- 
yond the academics of mathematics and was open to any- 
one with an interest in the subject. The liaison participat- 
ed in many activities in which both faculty and students 
were involved, such as career night, bake sales and lun- 
cheons. A new activity for the liaison was "speaker of 
the semester," in which a lecture was given once a se-

The Computer Science Liaison is a fairly new organiza- 
tion on campus. It was formed three years ago, and its 
members consist of computers and math majors. Because 
the liaison is newly formed, the members suggest im- 
provements for courses to their advisors in order to in- 
crease the number of students interested in the comput- 
ers field. The liaison sells disquettes to raise money to 
invite speakers from different computer science fields to 
lecture on campus. They are also organizing a career 
network which makes Simmons students aware of 

careers in computer science.

The English liaison is a small and 
close group. It consists of students 
majoring primarily in English. Their 
enthusiasm, size, and contributions 
from all its members allow the 
liaison to function in a very- 
successful manner. They hold such 
activities as a Spring and a Fall open 
house to allow interaction between 
faculty and students, bake sales, and 
evaluations. Michele, the liaison's 
president, hoped to implement po- 
etry functions and also have poets 
and other literary figures from the 
Boston area come to speak.

The Economics Liaison pro- 
vides students and faculty the 
chance to get together on an in- 
formal basis to discuss current 
events within the economics 
field. The liaison participates in 
many activities throughout the 
year such as T-shirt sales, career 
night, alumnae-student dinner 
and a "meet your professor par- 
ty" where students and faculty 
gather to have a great time. The 
liaison also assembled a career re- 
source file this year, to make stu- 
dents aware of economics jobs 
available and whom they should 
contact. The liaison is open to 
anyone with an interest in econo-

government majors combined with economics, 
English, or other majors. Their president, Pam 
Spencer, stressed the importance of input from 
all the members as well as the interaction 
among faculty and students. Through this in- 
teraction, they are able to create a well in- 
formed and organized group. Some of their ac- 
tivities include Law Day, a film series, a 
faculty and student dinner, and a Black /His- 
panic meeting against apartheid. These activit- 
ies, as well as the group's enthusiasm, input, 
and cohesiveness made the group unique as a

The liaison group meets informally to help present educational programs for the Simmons community. They 
provide a social setting for students and teachers who are in the international relations program. The "IR" major has 
some language, history, sociology, and government requirements. The liaison group helps to show what one can do 
with their major by hosting a career night each spring. The group also helps to promote the Warburg Chair Professor 
and some programs he may host. The liaison group organizes various events and is open to all who are interested.

The basketball team began its third season during second semester, and 
was looking forward to its most successful to date. The team was building 
strength with the addition of new players, many of whom will return to 
add experience to the team in the '86-'87 season.

The Simmons Crew Team which has been in existance 
eight years, has become stronger each year and is 
considered to be a strong competitor by other crew teams. 

The team is divided into "sub" teams. The Varsity and 
the Novice. The Novice team is comprised of first year row- 
ers who are not necessarily all freshmen. It is made up of 
people who have no rowing experience, row on novice for 
one year, and then move up to the varsity level the follow- 
ing year. 

The sport is really intense, yet all one needs to develop 
skill is the love of rowing and the dedication will follow. 
Dedication is just what one needs to practice at 6:00 a.m., as 
the varsity team does. 

The varsity and novice row out of the BU boathouse on 
the Charles River. In mid-November the sport moves 
indoors and concentrates on weight lifting and indoor 

The fall season consists of a few regatta's, the largest and 
the most well known being The Head of the Charles. The 
Foot of the Charles held a few weeks later is primarily a 
novice race but is now open to varsity fours. 

The spring season begins the last week in March and 
continues every Saturday until May. The Team practices in 
Boston over spring break to be ready for their competitions. 
They really are able to show their stuff in the "Dad" vail 
races, held in Philadelphia. It is a two day event with 150 
schools participating.

Leslie Soderberg Competes in Nationals 

By Liz Campbell 

On Saturday, November 23, 
the Simmons College cross- 
country team was recognized 
nationally. Representing Sim- 
mons at the NCAA Division 3 
National Cross Country Cham- 
pionships in Atlanta, Georgia, 
was Leslie Soderberg, a sopho- 
more. Soderberg qualified for 
Nationals the week before at 
the Division 3 Regionals held at 
SMU (Southeastern Massachu- 
setts University), taking sbtth 
place out of thousands of run- 
ners. On a very cold day, 
Soderberg says, "I was sixth or 
seventh throughout most of the 
race and I knew that one team 
and the top ten individuals 
would be sent to Nationals- 
knowing that, kept me right up 
in the lead." Soderberg used 
the flat course at SMU to her 
advantage. "We train around 
the Charles so there aren't too 
many hills in the city— the flat 
course was great," says Soder- 
berg. Competing at Regionals 
along with Simmons were 

Wheaton, Wellesley, Brandeis, 
Rhode Island College, and 

Tension and anxiety rose to 
its height the week before Na- 
tionals. "My coach (Ellie), was 
calling me every day to check 
on my pulse— it was abnormal- 
ly high, so she told me to rest 
that week. I was so jittery, I 
couldn't just sit around, even 
though I was so burnt out from 
the season," says Soderberg. 

Soderberg's coach and friend, 
Eleanor MendcKa, accompanied 
her on the trip to Georgia. Says 
Soderberg of Mendoca, "It was 
so nice to have the attention of 
my coach— she's great and she's 
really helped me all along." 
During the course of the flight, 
Soderberg says, "I was so re- 
lieved I had made it, but I kept 
thinking, 'Can 1 run against 
these girls?' " Also admitting 
that she was thinking about her 
schoolwork, Soderberg agreed 
that sometimes it is hard to 
separate her work from her 

The hosting school was 
Emory University and the ac- 
tual course was 14 miles from 
the school. On the day of the 
race, excitement and tension 
filled the air. It was a hot 
70-degree day— temperatures 
that Soderberg was not accus- 
tomed to running in. "I was 
hoping it would rain or snow," 
says Soderberg, adding, "I 
knew kids from the South 
wouldn't be used to those con- 
ditions." Soderberg admits feel- 
ing extremely nervous, com- 
menting that, ".I felt so small 
and everyone looked better 
than me." Energetic and 
vibrant, Soderberg describes 
the race as if she were re- 
running it in her head. At the 
start of the race, Soderberg 
jumped out in front and main- 
tained a good lead for about 
500 yards. On a very hilly 
course, Soderberg says, "I was 
tired after the first mile and my 
father told me I was in 30th 
place, with more hills ahead " 
Soderberg dropped as far down 

as 42nd place, but her last 
surge of strength came at the 
last mile, where she re-gained 
some strength, despite feeling 
exhaused. Soderberg crossed 
the finish line in 27th place, a 
great accomplishment in the 
eyes of Simmons, but Soder- 
berg says, "I always feel like 1 
could have run better." 

Awaiting Soderberg after the 
race was a professional 
massage— just one of the fringe 
benefits offered to the runners. 

Soderberg equates much of 
her success this year to, "the 
tremendous support of the 
team— Beth, Kristen, Margaret 
and Nancy." Soderberg hopes 
to see the entire team go down 
and compete next year 

Training about 7-10 miles a 
day during the season, Soder- 
berg says, "1 never know where 
I'm going with my running," 
although she does intend to 
train all winter and compete in 
a few road races.

The team which consisted of many freshmen this 
year, as well as returning players, was divided into 
two extremes, those with no or minimal experience in 
the game or those who were very advanced. The 
record for this years season (2-7-1) reflected the team's 
difficulty in pulling these two extremes together. 
Some of the players also had to deal with a high 
coaching turnover the past few years. 

The group as a whole showed a lot of enthusiasm 
for the sport. They were close knit and always tried 
their best, and the season was a success despite their 
record. The coach said that throughout the season they 
learned and improved. She described the difference 
between the first game and the last as the difference 
between night and day. They were a real team by the 
end, and 90% of the players are expected to return 
next season. From a coaching perspective, the high- 
light of the season was the improvement of each indi- 
vidual player and the coming together as a team.

After a decline in student participation 
over the past four to five years, the 
Sailing Team increased its membership 
and enthusiasm. Last year the team re- 
ceived new equipment and started 
serious competition again. The regattas, 
which are individual races in two divi- 
sions, A and B, involve different schools 
around the New England area: Boston 
University, Boston College, MIT, Brown 
University, Wheaton College, Colby Col- 
lege, Meritime Academy and Coast Guard 
Academy to name a few. The team's 
toughest competition was other 
Massachusetts women's colleges rather 
than the coed teams. This year the team 
did well overall, and looks forward to 
many other successful seasons.

The Simmons Volleyball Team finished 
the '85-'86 season as the Division III Class C 
State Runner-Ups; the first time that the 
team had made it to the State Tournament 
Finals. They lost to Worcester State in the 
final match. The team had five returning 
starters that gave them experience and pow- 
er. It also had many new freshmen that 
gave depth and a very good bench.

the best it had ever been. "All of us worked 
together as a unified team," she said. The 
team finished its season with a 19-6 overall

Dix Hall is a friendly dorm that prides 
itself on its good upper-lower class 

This year, the dorm held a number of 
new events. During the holiday season, a 
champagne and hors d'oeuvres party and 
a dorm /cookie decorating party helped to 
build Dix spirit. They created a "Roomate 
Game" where roomate pairs from each 
floor competed against each other for 

Trips to see "Camelot" and "The 
Nutcracker" exposed quality entertain- 
ment in Boston to the residents. 

The dorm council also brought back 
Dix Hall T-shirts, which had not been de- 
signed in the last few years. An end-of- 
the-year barbeque with a band was a 
perfect way to wrap up a successful year 
of Dix dorm life.

Simmons Hall is the biggest dorm on campus. It 
houses not only a variety of under and 
upperclassmen, but also the residence security 

The dorm holds many activities around the 
various holiday seasons. For Halloween, they had a 
pumpkin decorating contest, as well as trick or 
treating on each floor with the north side and the 
south side of the dorm visiting each other. They 
also had an international dinner where each floor 
was assigned to bring a different kind of food. Oth- 
er events included their annual "Color Wars" (in 
which each floor competed against each other) and 
a Motown party with a disc jockey to which other 
colleges attended. 

In Simmons Hall, special efforts are taken to 
aquaint the residents with each other, since the 
dorm's large size physically divides the living quar- 
ters. People seem very satisfied and happy to live 
there, and many, underclassmen say that they'd 
chosen to stay in Simmons Hall each year.

Pilgrim House, recently acquired 
from Wheelock College, is located 
across Pilgrim Road from Smith and 
Dix Halls. The dorm's homey 
atmosphere and small size enables 
its residents to get to know each 
other well. 

Pilgrim House activities include a 
Christmas time donation to Rosie's 
Place, a shelter for homeless people 
to go for food and shelter. Pilgrim 
Awareness Week, November 17-23, 
was established to educate other 
Simmons students about Pilgrim 
House, since many were not aware 
of what happens there.

South Hall is one of the smallest dorms on 
campus with only 94 residents. The dorm has a 
close and considerate atmosphere where every- 
one looks out for everyone else— just like a fam- 
ily. One special feature that adds to this feeling 
is the dorm's "Secret Sisters" program in which 
each "sister" does small nice things for each oth- 
er to brighten their days. 

The dorm has many unique events. One of the 
most famous of which is the Mr. Simmons 
content. Men come from area colleges and uni- 
versities to compete. Wearing tuxedos, the men 
answer questions and perform in some way. 
Another event is their costume party. On a dif- 
ferent program level. South Hall also enjoyed a 
lecture on the pro peace issue from the National 
Nuclear Department.

Smith Hall is a spirited dorm, rich in tradition. 
The dorm sponsored the annual "Dating Game", 
involving Simmons women and men from area 
colleges. They also held an annual dorm Christ- 
mas and Halloween party and frequent dorm 
brunches. At Christmas time, the dorm volun- 
teered to go caroling at the Chilren's Hospital. 

Smith Hall is in an especially active place in 
that it houses the Quadside Cafe, a weight room, 
and study rooms located in the basement. It is 
also equipped with a computer room.

1985, 1986 . . . , What comes to mind? The Philly on Thursday, a haircut and cellophane at 
Samantha's, a midnight grocery run to Star? How much did we really spend? 

Fifty cents would buy a cup of hot chocolate, as well as pay for your R.A. to open your room once you 
have locked yourself out. Sixty cents would buy you a soda. (Don't forget the five cent deposit.) Seventy 
five cents would get you from The Fenway to downtown on the "T", as well wash a load of laundry. A 
small sub at Ruby's was $2.00 and for a little more. Domino's delivered. The going rate for haircuts 
seemed to be eight dollars at such establishments as Hair Systems or Supercuts (with student I.D., of 
course), or you could pay twenty dollars more if you prefer a name which we shall not mention (John 
Dellaria). It seemed no one was satisfied with the number of earrings in their ears, thus, the price of ear 
piercing went as high as eight dollars. For about twenty-five dollars, you could complete your closet 
with stirrup pants, and at the same time spend another twenty-five for a long shirt to match. Here's 
where the savings comes in — How much rhinestone jewelry did we confiscate from our grandmothers? 
That long shirt just wasn't complete without a glittery pin at the lapel. Shall we talk about sweaters? 
Better not. 

What did we listen to? Please do not say Michael Jackson or you may be shunned from society. Bruce 
you say? O.K. that's cool. Madonna taught us how to dress and Tina Turner brought back high heels. 
Bob Geldof tried to feed the world by himself, but received help anyway from such notables as Paul 
McCartney, Bono of U-2, and Sting. Tears for Fears seemed to rule (if not the world) the charts. 

Eddie Murphy emerged as comedian of the year and kept us laughing in "Beverly Hills Cop". The 
young actors of the future all seemed to appear in "The Breakfast Club", and then mysteriously popped 
up again in "St. Elmos Fire." Into violence? Then Rambo was for you. Sylvester Stallone appeared in 
First Blood as well as (yes, it must be said) another Rocky film. As far as television this year there was 
Miami Vice, The Cosby Show . . . Miami Vice . . . The Cosby Show .... 

On the local scene, everybody loved to browse at Copley Place, but when it was time to buy however, 
Filene's Basement looked good. Looking for a place to buy things you would probably never use? Quin- 
cy Market was the place. What did we do at night? Don't say check the bulletin boards for fraternity 
parties. I should hope you had grown out that stage. Remember when that was the be-all and end-all of 
existence? Kind of scary. 

What was all the talk about? Band Aid, Live Aid, and AIDS to name a few. Apartheid kept our atten- 
tion, as did the many tragedies abroad. We were stunned by the explosion of the shuttle Challenger. We 
watched, listened, and then voiced our opinions and concerns. We realized our importance as individ- 
uals as we prepared to leave Simmons. 1985, 1986 . . . the memories will always be with us.

Dith Pran says he is not a hero 

By Pam Manganaro 

"I am not a hero," said the 
man who survived four years of 
captivity in a Cambodian 
prison camp; who watched 
Communist soldiers toss 
children in the air to catch 
them on their bayonets; who 
endured torture for countless 
hours; who watched hundreds 
die from starvation and exhaus- 
tion; who ate scorpions to stay 

"I am not a hero," said Dith 
Pran, whose life during the 
Vietnam War was portrayed in 
the Academy Award winning 
fUm, The Killing Fields. The Kill- 
ing Fields is based on the inter- 
twining lives of Pran and Neiu 
York Times reporter, Sydney 
Schanberg. And, as Pran de- 
scribes, "It is the real-life story 
of innocent people, the friend- 
ship between two nationalities 
and two cultures." 

Sponsored by the Activities 
Programming Board, Pran 
SfKjke at Simmons College on 
October 8. Pran said he came to 
speak to "right the sometimes 
wrong story of the govern- 
ments." He was very pleased 
with the large audience and 
said, "By coming here today. 

you have all shown that you 
have an interest in the Cam- 
bodian story." 

Pran, who spent two months 
in an American hospital to 
regain his strength after return- 
ing from Cambodia, is a slight 
man. He describes himself as 
"skinny but healthy." He ex- 
cused his broken English and 
explained that he taught him- 
self English from a book and 
practiced with the tourists. 

Pran spoke extensively about 
his life in Cambodia and his 
satisfaction with The Killing 
Fields. Pran commented, "The 
movie was a very good show of 
the war." He added that the 
film minimized the true hell of 
Cambodia because an American 
audience would not have been 
able to handle it. "The Killing 
Fields is not just another war 
movie. It does not end in two 
hours. It goes on every minute, 
around the clock, around the 
world," said Pran. 

Pran cited the Cambodian 
horror as the third holocaust. 
He explained the first holocaust 
as the persecution of the 
Armenians; the second was the 
persecution of the Jews. With 
wrinkles of concern across his 

forehead, Pran said that he 
could not understand why such 
atrocities could continue. He 
added that the Cambodian 
holocaust was even more diffi- 
cult to understand because 
Cambodians were killed by 
their own people— the Khmer 

The Khmer Rouge Party is a 
Communist, radical group in 
Cambodia. Pran stated that 
during the war, the Khmer 
Rouge were supplied with 
weapons by the North Viet- 
namese and the Soviet Union. 
Pran said he couldn't under- 
stand "the craziness"— even to 
this day. 

Pran said he holds the Soviet 
Union and China responsible 
for the war in Cambodia. These 
two super powers, he ex- 
plained, used Cambodia as a 
tool in their own power strug- 
gle. He added that neither of 
these countries took any re- 
sponsibility for the destruction 
of Cambodia and her people. 
The United States was the only 
super power involved in the 
war to give any kind of 
humanitarian aid to the 

Pran excused the United 

States for any "interference," 
but said that the United States 
and all countries must learn to 
be honest about their mistakes. 
Pran recalled a scene in The 
Killing Fields when the 
American government tried to 
cover up an accidental bombing 
of a Cambodian village. He 
commented, "I don't blame the 
US, everyone makes mistakes. 
Just be honest about them." 

Asked where his will to live 
came from, Pran gave all credit 
to his destiny chosen by Bud- 
dha. He added, "Some starving 
people will look at a scorpion 
and say that it is too ugly to 
eat. Me, I look at it and say 
that it is stronger than leaves, 
so I eat the scorpion." 

Pran disclosed the most pain- 
ful part of the film as the scene 
when the British Embassy 
couldn't accept a falsified 
passport to secure his depar- 
ture from Cambodia. "Every 
time I see that scene I cry, it is 
so difficult to remember how 
we all felt," said Pran. 

According to Pran, he never 
blamed Schanberg for any of 
his ordeal. "We are brothers, 
we do everything we can for 
each other." The two are still in 
touch, as Pran explains, "just 
like brothers." 

Pran said that he would like 
to return to Cambodia if it be- 
came neutral. At present, he is 
trying to secure his 69-year-old 
mother passage to the United 
States. Pran said he has been 
having difficulty with the 
United Nations, whose policies 
he describes as "paper work." 
Pran concluded that both he 
and Schanberg want their story 
told— particularly to students 
because "they are the future of 
the world."

Susan Cheever speaks on writing 

By Carolyn Magnuson 

"I decided when I was 16 that 
I was absolutely not going to be 
a writer. My father was a writer 
. . .and I thought that was 
enough for one family." 

The audience laughed at the 
irony that Susan Cheever chose 
those words to begin her recent 
lecture at Simmons College en- 
titled "On Writing." 

After a slew of newspaper 
and magazine articles and four 
novels— including a biography 
of her father, author John 
Cheever, which catapulted her 
into a new realm of critical and 
public acclaim— and, with her 
fifth novel on the way, Susan 
Cheever has finally begun to 
admit to herself that, yes, she is 
a writer. 

Cheever feels that her early 
failures as a writer are what 
actually launched her writing 
career. "I think failing as a 
writer when I was in my twen- 
ties was good," said Cheever, 
who did not begin her career 
until she was thirty-five. "Suc- 
cess is a closed door; failure is 
the beginning of something." 

Cheever confesses to terrible 
high school English grades and 
even worse attempts to follow 
her father's practice of keeping 
journals. She said her journals 
were "horrible"— overly emo- 
tional and bogged down by un- 
necessarv di?*.t3L Now, as a 
■ " - "" ' "='fc iournals to be 
;■■ s:f*«?« too time- 

[the journals] would be most 
interesting— when my life is t|ie 
most full— that 1 tend not to 
keep them." 

Cheever's father had no plans 
for his daughter to follow in his 
footsteps. "He was more con- 
cerned with how 1 looked and 
who 1 was seeing," she said. "It 
was my brother whom he 
wanted to be a writer." As a 
result, Cheever said, she does 
not approach her writing with 
her father in mind. "If 1 did," 
she said, "I couldn't write. But I 
do have trouble getting dressed 
in the morning because 1 can 
hear my father say, 'Susan, 
you're wearing that?' " 

Cheever says she spent her 
college years "trying to prove 1 
didn't have to play by the 
rules." After she graduated 
from. Brown University, she 
went through a series of roles 
including wife, mother, and 
macrame-belt peddler. It was 
out of desperation, she says, 
that she got a job as a journalist 
for a small newspaper through 
a former student of her mother 

Cheever has a favorite story 
from her days on that news- 
paper that she uses to illustrate 
how newspaper writing allows 
an author immediate audience 
reaction. "There was a school 
committee member in that 
town who 1 did not particularly 
get along with," she recounts. 
"As 1 was leaving work and get- 
ting into my car, I saw him 
walking down the street 

reading that day's newspaper. 
From the page he was open to, 
1 could see he was reading the 
article I had written about him 
that day. He was reading so in- 
tently he didn't notice that he 
had come to the curb and 
tripped right over it ... I have 
never received such immediate 
response to my prose." 

Cheever then joined the staff 
at Newsweek where she "wrote 
about bathing suits for the Life- 
style section." During this time, 
she still did not consider herself 
a writer but a journalist. Then 
someone she calls a "persistent 
friend" suggested that she write 
a novel. 

Intrigued by the idea, she 
sold her car, collected her un- 
used vacation pay, and saved 
her income tax refund to be 
able to support herself while 
she wrote a novel. Then she 
went to her editor's office to re- 
quest a leave of absence. "I 
gave what we call my 'fiction in 
my blood' speech. I pleaded 
Tou have to understand, my 
father was a writer It's in my 
blood and 1 need to take a leave 
of absence to work this thing 
out.' Then my editor said, 'No, 
Susan absolutely not,' and I 
was so relieved!" she sighs. "I 
thought 'Well, that's the end of 
that ridiculous idea.' " 

Her persistent friend, who is 
now her second husband, con- 
vinced her to talk to her editor 
again. This time she threatened 
to quit if she were not granted 
a leave of absence. She got her 
leave of absence and she still 
has n^t gone back to Newsweek. 
During that leave of absence 
she wrote three novels. Looking 
for Work in 1980, A Handsome 
Man in 1981, and The Cage in 
1982. She was then awarded a 
Guggenheim Fellowship to 
write a biography of her late 

Cheever maintains that writ- 
ing Home Before Dark was not as 
difficult as researching the 
book. Her research led her to 
her father's journals, his 
friends, and his colleagues to 
explore his life. Home Before 
Dark chronicles John Cheever's 
bouts with alcoholism, his trou- 
bled marriage and extramarital 
affairs, his bisexuality, and his 
fatal Cancer. They are not sub- 
jects a daughter likes to exploit 
when writing about her father 
but Cheever says she felt no 
compulsion to glorify her father 

"1 wrote the sympathetic 
book," she says of Home Before 
Dark. She slips into pensive- 
ness as if she has been asked a 
question she hasn't really 
thought about and doesn't want 
to answer She finally ends her 
pause; "Your parents are both 
angels and devils and 1 por- 
trayed him [her father] as an 
angel ... I loved him . . .What 
else could 1 do?" 

Cheever's current project is a 
book about the medical profes- 
sion which is scheduled for re- 
lease in the winter of 1987. 
Cheever said the book began as 
a non-fiction account of doctors' 

lives that transformed into a 
novel, but, she said, "It's really 
a book about doctors and what 
they represent to us." The book 
is currently in the middle of a 
long series of drafts which is 
standard procedure for Cheever 
when she writes anything. "I 
throw out nine-tenths of what 1 
write," Cheever said, "I just 
hope I'm throwing out the right 

Now that she admits that 
she's a writer, Cheever sees 
herself as a writer who hap- 
pens to be a woman and not a 
"woman writer." She is con- 
cerned, however, with the cir- 
cumstances women face today. 
"I think the '80s were rotten for 
women," she said. "I think the 
'70s were rotten . . .The things 
that women do aren't valued in 
our society." Cheever cites her 
travels in Europe as an indica- 
tion of this. "It's not like that in 
Europe at all," she said. 
"Women here age so much 
faster and you see men marry- 
ing younger and younger 
women to keep themselves 

As a writer, Cheever must 
face the inevitable comparisons 
made between her work and 
her father's. Cheever finds that 
it is book reviewers who make 
the comparisons most frequent- 
ly. She has also found that re- 
viewers are both her friends 
and her foes. In theory, 
Cheever says, she doesn't pay 
much attention to reviews but 
in practice, it's a different story. 
"It's stupid to read your 
reviews," she said, but donned 
an impish grin and added, "but 
on the other hand . . ." 

Cheever's collegiate rebellion 
resurfaces when she talks about 
one particularly nasty reviewer. 
"I always swore I'd kill her if I 
ever saw her." Cheever had a 
change of heart when she un- 
knowingly met the reviewer 
and began talking to her "1 was 
having a very animated conver- 
sation with this woman for 
about ten minutes when 1 
realized I hadn't introduced 
myself," Cheever begins. " 'Hi! 
I'm Susan Cheever,' 1 said. She 
just got very quiet and said 
'Yes, 1 know' but didn't seem to 
want to introduce herself. 
When she finally did— well, 1 
didn't kill her." Cheever adds 
that, while it wasn't one of her 
most pleasant moments, "it was 
OK— she still walks the earth." 
Cheever says, however, that 
while she's writing a novel, she 
doesn't even corvsider review- 
ers. "I don't write good books 
or bad books," she says. "I 
write what I write ... if 1 don't, 
I'm cooked." 

.Cheever adds that reviewers 
have begun to see her as a 
writer in her own light instead 
of constantly comparing her 
work to her father's. But she 
adds, having an author for a 
father has had one big advan- 
tage for her; "At least everyone 
knows how to spell my name."

Simmons Sports Center 
Begins to Take Shape

Preliminary plan for Simmons sports center by architects Goody, Clancy & 
Associates, Inc. Entering the building from Brookline Avenue or the residence 
campus, visitors will find a spacious lobby with views of the pool and dance studio. 

For decades, Simmons College 
students have dreamed about a 
fully-equipped sports facility. At 
their October meeting, members of 
the Simmons College Corporation 
voted to make that dream a reality 
when they approved plans for a 
multi-million dollar sports facility 
on the residence campus. 

"This is an exciting step for 
Simmons," says President William J. 
Holmes. "A comprehensive sports 
facility will benefit our students 
and all of the Simmons community." 

According to Sheila Brown, Direc- 
tor of Athletics, current plans for 
the sports center include a competi- 

tion-sized pool, basketball and 
volleyball courts, a dance studio, an 
athletic training room, a rowing 
tank, racquetball and squash courts, 
a weight-training room, locker 
rooms, whirlpool, equipment rooms, 
offices, storage rooms, and laundry 
facilities, as well as a spacious lobby 
and snack bar. 

Goody, Clancy & Associates, Inc., 
architects for the sports center, are 
no strangers to Simmons. They 
were also the architects for the 
renovation of the Main College 
Building, which included the Fens

Bears give 
New England 
46-10 beating 

By Ron Borges 
Globe Staff 

NEW ORLEANS— Long before the Bears had finished 
shuffling on down to the end zone by doing the Super 
Bowl Shuffle across the sunken chests of the New 
England Patriots, no one had any reason — including 
loyalty — to doubt who was the best football team in 

"It was a nightmare out there," said fullback Mosi 
Tatupu. "Mentally, we thought we were still in it, but it 
just got out of hand. We're not proud of our performance 
today, but that's the way it goes." 

In the end, the Patriots went because the Bears had ad- 
ministered the worst beating in Super Bowl history, 
crushing New England, 46-10, yesterday in Super Bowl 
XX. But the outcome was determined by halftime and 
reinforced in the first nine minutes of the third quarter. 

By then, Chicago held a 37-3 lead, its defense had 
overwhelmed New England's offensive line and the Pa- 
triots had set a half dozen Super Bowl records for most 
years moving backwards. 

"Our defense was unbelievable," said Bears coach 
Mike Ditka. "The Patriots were never in the game. We 
knew early we could handle them.

AIDS: Terror of the '80s 

The 1980s have witnessed the rapid spread of sex- 
ually transmitted diseases. 1985, in particular, brought 
to the public's attention the newest and most deadly 
sexually transmitted disease, AIDS, or Acquired Im- 
mune Deficiency Syndrome. According to the AIDS 
Action Committee of Boston, "The disease destroys the 
body's immune system and leaves it defenseless 
against many infections and cancers." AIDS is usually 
fatal, but the disease itself does not kill the person, the 
other infections or cancers are the cause of death. 

The National Institute of Allergy & Infectious 
Disease and The Center for Disease Control state that 
the disease is spread through the exchange of body 
fluids during sexual intercourse, through the sharing 
of needles of infected drug addicts or by getting a 
transfusion of blood from an infected person. The 
disease is mainly found in the homosexual communi- 

ty, particularly in homosexual or bisexual men, al- 
though it has spread to the heterosexual community. 

The death of actor Rock Hudson, in early October of 
1985 at age 59 was a great shock to the public. It was 
rumored that Hudson was a homosexual, but the actor 
never confirmed the stories. The actor's illness and 
death brought public attention and concern for Hud- 
son and other AIDS victims. This led to a special per- 
formance of many famous entertainers to raise money 
for AIDS on September 19, 1985. 

Hudson was too ill to attend but he did send a tele- 
gram which stated, "I am not happy that I am sick. I 
am not happy that I have AIDS. But if that is helping 
others, I can at least know that my own misfortune 
has had some positive worth."

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.— The space shuttle Challenger ex- 
ploded into a huge fireball moments after liftoff yesterday 
morning, killing all seven crew members, including Christa 
McAuliffe, the New Hampshire high school teacher who was to 
be the country's first private citizen to orbit the Earth. 

As Challenger rose spectacularly off its launch pad into clear 
blue skies at 11:38 a.m., all appeared normal, and a crowd that 
included McAuliffe's husband, two children and parents roared 
its approval. 

Then, 75 seconds into the flight, as Challenger achieved full 
engine power for the thrust that would carry it into orbit, the 
spacecraft inexplicably exploded. 

It was the country's worst space disaster, stunning the nation 
at a time when the shuttle program— and McAuliffe— had suc- 
ceeded in captivating the American public.

students concerned 
about College 
investment in 
South Africa 

By Jackie Price and 
Carolyn Magnuson 

Simmons students have ex- 
pressed concern about the Col- 
lege's investment policies in 
South Africa particularly after 
statements made by President 
Holmes at a recent panel dis- 
cussion on the subject. 

"I think that after hearing the 
discussion, I felt more in favor 
of divestitiue (for Simmons 
College)," said Barbara Howard, 
a Simmons student. 

Thie panel discussion, spon- 
sored by the Second-Year RA 
Council, took place on Tuesday, 
October 22, in the Simmons 
Hall living room. President 
Holmes, David Echeverria, In- 
structor in Management, and 
Brad Bateman, Associate Pro- 
fessor of Economics, were the 
key speakers. President Holrttes 
began the discussion by out- 
lining the College's investment 
policies in South Africa. Eche- 
verria followed Holmes by pre- 
senting his arguments against 
divestiture. Bateman then out- 
lined why the College should 
divest its holdings in companies 
that still do business in South 

Holmes said that the Sim- 
mons College Corporation has 
had a policy to consider social 
responsibility when making 
College investment decisions 
since 1972. "We have no direct 
investment in (the country of) 
South Africa," Holmes said. 
"We never invested in a com- 
pany based in South Africa nor 
have we invested in a company 
which does a major percentage 
of its business in South Africa. 
We try to be sensitive to the 
issue," he said. Holmes also 
said that the College did not in- 
vest in gold during the rush of 

1980 partly because much of 
the gold came from South 

Africa. The companies in the 
Simmons portfolio that do deal 
with South Africa have very lit- 
tle of their total operations 
there, according to Holmes. He 
also said that divestiture would 
deny the College access to in- 
vestments in one-third to one- 
half of all American companies. 

Echeverria argued that dives- 
titure would be unprofitable for 
the College. He agreed with 
Holmes that divestiture would 
deny the College access to too 
many profitable American com- 
panies. Echeverria also argued 
that Simmons College divesti- 
ture would have little impact on 
a company's decision to con- 
tinue doing business in South 
Africa. He was fearful that if 
American companies did pull 
out of South Africa, it would 
have a negative effect. Eche- 
verria, a former marine, cited 
the events following America's 
puUout from Indochina as an 
indication of what could hap- 
pen if American companies 
pulled out of South Africa. He 
went on to say that American 
companies in South Africa pro- 
vide the best opportunities for 
black workers there. 

Bateman argued for divesti- 
ture on both economic and 
moral grounds. He cited in- 
stances of "South Africa-free" 

investment portfolios that were 
more profitable than portfolios 
containing stocks in companies 
that have continued to do 
business in South Africa. He 
then pointed out the inherent 
racial prejudice in the apartheid 
system of government. He 
argued that Simmons is contra- 
dicting its educational objec- 
tives by financially supporting 
blatant oppression. 

In the question-and-answer 
session that followed, it ap- 
peared that most of the audi- 

ence agreed with Bateman's 

position that Simmons should 
divest its holding in companies 
that still do business in South 
Africa. Most of the students, 
and one faculty member in the 
audience, expressed anger that 
President Holmes was attempt- 
ing to diffuse the situation. The 
anger intensified when Dean 
Morocco suggested that rather 
than divestiture, appropriate ac- 
tion would be a consumer boy- 
cott of products from com- 
panies that still have operations 
in South Africa. Students 
argued repeatedly to President 
Holmes that American com- 
panies operating in South 

Africa were supporting apart- 
heid and that the College had a 
moral obligation to divest itself 
of investments in those 

President Holmes announced 
at the panel discussion that the 
College only invested in those 
companies that adhered to the 
Sullivan Principles, a list of 
guidelines for the treatment of 
blacks working for those com- 
panies. An unconfirmed report 
indicates that this policy was 
adopted by the College as 
recently as two weeks ago, even 
though the Sullivan Principles 
were introduced and gained 
widespread acceptance several 
years ago. The Simmons News at- 
tempted to call Michael West, 
Treasurer of the College, to con- 
firm this report and was re- 
ferred by his office staff to 
President Holmes. President 
Holmes' office said that the 
President would be on a fund- 
raising tour until the end of 
this week and would be un- 
available for comment.

Along with the 1980's came a new influence in society — the 
young urban professionals — YUPPIES! These educated baby- 
boomers are an elite group of people known for their desire for the 
finest things in life — BMW's, gourmet dinners, and Back Bay 

We, ten members of the Class of '86, also have become an influ- 
ence in our society — the Simmons College Campus. But we are not 
elitists and may never enjoy gourmet dinners, and by the YUPPIES' 
standards, may even be considered young urban 
failures — YUPPIES! But we, too, want the finest that life can offer 
us — happiness.
